4. Dos and Windows versions

There are DOS and Windows versions of SQG available. The Windows version is a command line program just like the Dos and Linux versions. If you are a Windows user there is a grapical user interface(GUI) for SQG that will make the program easier to use. You can find it on the official SQG download page(

The DOS version of SQG is a 16-bit DOS executable but will run on the command prompt in Windows. The only Windows platforms that the DOS version of SQG has been tested on is Win98, and WinXP. SQG has also been tested on MS-DOS 6.22 which is a 16-bit operating system. It has not been tested on Win95, Win2K or NT, but should run on any of these systems.

The source distributed with the DOS and Windows versions is the same as the Linux version with 2 exceptions. In gototable(), the second argument in the calls to fseek have 1 added to them.

The source was put into one file for the DOS version because otherwise Borland C/C++ 3.1 wouldn't compile it. The same is true for the Windows version except the compiler used to create the 32-bit Windows version is Dev-C++.
